Timing is Everything
My life has always worked like a puzzle; sometimes the puzzle is a little easier than at other times.  ☺

Last week I took some time to blog about the power of visualization.  With every ounce of my being, I know visualization can help us gain outcomes we want, we have the power to make things happen.  That attitude has guided me through many stages of my life.  The challenge is to remember that visualization is a tool and sometimes what we want isn’t going to happen.

On the other hand, much of what we want to happen, can happen if we ask others for help, if we visualize success, and if we do the necessary work in order to succeed.  Life is a force that needs to be guided in order to be spiritually and physically healthy.   I love knowing that much of what succeeds is a ‘group project’.

Success comes only with effort!  I’ve been exploring all of what I am saying above for years, but last week was the first time I was as direct as I was.  I asked for those in my world to visualize good things for my family and me.

And then came Saturday evening’s gift – the B’nai Brith Youth Organization’s East Coast Kallah.  I wasn’t able to be part of the entire Shabbat, but I did end up going to the Saturday evening program! What a profound gift!

In a nutshell, I witnessed the teens going nuts when four 20-something year olds came on stage.  They were the creators/developers of the MTV show called The Buried Life.  These gentlemen rocked in every way! The men were wise beyond their years; they understand what it means to live and to work towards what they want to accomplish.  Wow!!  These guys are also extraordinarily skilled mentors for all who take a moment to listen.

So, the significant question that The Buried Life creators continue to ask is:  What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? Creating that list is a powerful tool towards working toward your desires!  The goal is to be wildly honest and then to do the work it takes to make it happen.  Tell everyone you know and those you don’t know that you are working towards reaching a goal.  Ask them if they can help or if they know someone who can.  And while you are schmoozing ask them what they are trying to accomplish in their lives.  Ask those that you meet: What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? In some cases, you might be able to help people connect with their goals and you can always actively visualize people meeting their goals.

Each of needs to learn from The Buried Life’s creators list:
1.    Make a list – What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? 100 ideas
2.    Share the list (with your friends and loved ones)
3.    Help Others

As you work towards your goals, remember to listen to the creators of The Buried Life who empowered their teen audience to remain:
o    persistent
o    open to opportunity
o    creative
as they work towards their goals.  One key that made so much sense is that:
You should never accept NO.

You never know when you will be in the right place at the right time! ☺ Hearing these wise souls talk to the teens on Saturday evening felt like fabulous timing!
